Default Durometer - Recommendations

I am looking for a durometer to measure foam tires. I assume that a standard durometer will fit this need? If not, what will.

Also, does anyone have advice on a good place to pick a decent one up for a good price?

Anything that I should look out for or avoid if looking on e-bay?

Thanks!!

The digital ones are easy to read and are also relitivly cheap, there like $20 so i would get one of those on e-bay.

I haven't seen any digital ones. Most of the dial-based ones are around $40+.

Calipers and Durometers are not the same thing. Durometers measure the hardness of tires.

An example:

Is there any special requirements for measuring foam over the ones that are available for rubber?

I am assuming they are one in the same....
